Just a few days away from first game of the season, the Seattle Seahawks have been in an ongoing battle this whole past offseason with star safety Kam Chancellor. Who has been holding out this whole offseason due to contract issues. But could Chancellor be heading to the New York Giants? A lot of reports today have been sensing that both sides have been talking about a deal.
Chancellor is one of the best safeties in the league. He knows how to get after the receiver when they are after the ball, he has great hands and his hit power is out of this world. He is mostly known for getting a lot of tackles. Do not doubt his ability to get after the ball, going after receivers and getting interceptions though. Teams trust him to be a shutdown safety.
If this trade gets done this would be a big piece acquired by the Giants. The team needs a lockdown safety in Chancellor. Going back the other way to Seattle would most likely be draft picks and players. Do not be surprised if wide receiver Victor Cruz is part of the package going to the Seahawks since he is not the Giants’ number one receiver any longer. The Seahawks would also like his deep threat potential as well, even with the risk that he is coming off surgery.
Giants fans should not be all happy about this rumor, though Chancellor is one of the best in the league. With all the hype one has one wonder what it will cost to get him. The Seahawks will want a lot for the star safety. The other thing the team will have to worry about is working on a new contract with Chancellor. Keeping him happy and not having him holding out has proven to be a challenge. Chancellor will probably want close to 80 million maybe 100 million dollars.
